It was also very moving to see the faces in the crowd, silently riveted on his every word. All these people, these broken, screwed over, lied to, used and abused people, so tired of hurting, so tired of the lies and the racism and the hate and the bombs and the money masters and the filth posing as our saviors; and they wanted to believe him. They really wanted to believe him. Tears ran down their cheeks too. Some people were glowing with relief and hope, others looked so afraid and tentative and yet they listened. We don't want to have our hope re-ignited again only to have it backhanded into the dirt. We don't want to go there again. Not again.
I knew that the feeling of being released from the death grip of the phony republican party and their zionist/satanist agenda would feel good, but I really didn't know how profound the feeling would be. My God I want those people out of there so bad it defies words. They are terrible horrible people. Thank God they've been shown the door.
We have learned much in the last few years, probably more than we ever wanted to know. It was a hard lesson, a hard series of ever more disturbing lessons, truths about the kinds of people that exist among us who are the most dangerous people in the world. You can't tell just by looking at them and it shocked us to find out who they really were, what they really stood for, and how obsessed they were with the opposite of everything we not only believe in, but understand is the only right way to go.
I liked it very much when he said he would be everyone's president. Because bush made it clear early on that he was only president to those who funded and supported him, a clear minority of this country. He abandoned huge swaths of this nation and it insulted me to the core.
I also have to say that finally having a black man elected to the leadership of this country is very inspiring. We needed this so badly. In part it is a vindication of black America who has been relentlessly deprived of fair access to justice and prosperity. They weren't even recipients of good will from this government, and I am hopeful that will begin to change. At long last. There are so many layers and depths to this that I can't begin to mention them all or do them justice. I don't need to really. All I need to do is notice the feeling in my chest, and the feeling in my heart and even though I feel so sad I also feel so happy. This is an historical moment to be sure. A change has already come. Please let this man live. We need him. I worry for him and wonder if he'll even make it to his inauguration. We shall see.
Does that mean I have regained faith in this government? No. It sure doesn't mean that. This is separate from all that, just for tonight, because this really was an incredible moment in my life, and for the whole world. It was really something special. I'm glad I was able to experience it and I send my best wishes and good hope to Obama. May he shine.
